If we're producing Olympic champion swimmers/divers and winning national championships, that matters more than just making the NCAA tournament every so often.

If hockey is consistently in the Frozen Four and winning a national championship occasionally, that moves the needle more. I'd argue that with the Sabres/NHL exposure at HarborCenter and the massive population in Ontario, that could be amazing for Canisius.

If we're talking about basketball going to March Madness once every five years and losing to a BCS school, then it's less worth it. If we're talking getting to the Sweet 16 once a decade or once every five years, I'd want basketball.

Ideally, you'd want all the above, but that's not usually possible.

That's what I'm saying. What if the path to success is investing a ton in hockey and less everywhere else in order to make Canisius a top hockey school? That might be better for the athletic program than a middling hoops program.
